The Queue: Ask the beta testers {WoW}

Mar 22nd 2012 11:43AM If I log into battle.net to see if I have a beta invite do I have to go to a certain page, or am I going to get slapped in the face with it the moment I log in?

Sure there's the e-mail notification, but I trust those about as much as e-mails for miracle all natural male enhancement.

The Queue: You'll have to move fast {WoW}

Mar 10th 2012 12:21PM Think blizzard will use the Darkmoon faire's zoo to do some sneaky previews of MoP mobs?

The Queue: Scroll of Resurrection {WoW}

Mar 7th 2012 11:42AM Why are heroic raid IDs so much stricter than regular raids? Has blizzard ever explained this, or is it just a relic from the old way raid IDs were handled?

For normals, you can hop between multiple raid groups all you need(depending on what bosses are still up) and even swap between 10 and 25 man raids. That's very helpful when raid night attendance can be anywhere from 12 to 30 on any given night.

All that falls apart once a guild starts doing heroic bosses. If you kill a heroic boss on 25 man Tuesday, your progression is done for the week if only 10 people show up the next time. If you split in to two 10 mans for a heroic kill and only half of each team shows up the next day you're just as screwed. Sure you can finish off the reg fights, but what's the point when you're DEing over half the loot?

Officers' Quarters: The importance of finding 'me time' {WoW}

Mar 5th 2012 1:17PM "A player who logs in after your announcement won't understand why you're set to DND. Or else they'll simply tell themselves that tag applies to everyone else but not them. (After all, you're their guild leader, right?)"

Don't just use /dnd

Use /dnd Enjoying some time to myself. My chat window is off.

When anyone whispers you they won't just get the "do not disturb". They'll also get your message explaining why you're DND.

What are multiboxers and how do you fight one in PvP? {WoW}

Mar 1st 2012 3:25PM Fear them.

No, I don't mean be afraid of them. I mean hit them with fears. Can't effectively control multiple characters when they're all running different directions.

The Queue: Blame Alex {WoW}

I will never understand people liking that show. A couple of my friends like it, and have tried to to get me to like it, but all I think is "this is a show for people who are under 10 or so." (No offense to people who like it, but yeah...)""""


"Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." -C.S. Lewis

The Queue: I would not hire Tails {WoW}

Feb 27th 2012 11:13AM Is there any reason why my rogue has all kinds of frame rate issues that my other toons don't? My paladin can pull whole instances when farming for transmog, but my rogue hits 3 fps every other trash pull when running 5 mans. From time to time I get an error saying one of my addons is running in to a lot of errors(naturally it won't say which add on), but I run the same mods on every toon. My rogue runs even less than the others.

When talking to a guild mate about it she said she has one alt that crashes WoW when she tries to play it on her husbands computer. Her son has a priest alt that can't go into Grim batol without it locking up his PC at the loading screen.

Is this stuff normal? What could be causing it?

The Queue: Garbage Day! {WoW}

Feb 10th 2012 11:29AM If you're keeping some pvp gear in you bags to give you that one or 2 more points you need to get into a heroic, it's unlikely anyone will care of even notice as long as you're playing well. If you show up in greens and heirloom gear you expect to be called out on it before the tank pulls the first mob.

Have reforging demands become too complex? {WoW}

Jan 31st 2012 1:37PM I just hate dealing with messing with things like hit and expertise 'rating' vs the percentage I need. It would be really nice it it would show me that reforging into X hit rating will give me Y%.

And while were at it, how about when some one links me an item they reforged have the info box show me how they reforged it!

Breakfast Topic: What NPC do you miss the most? {WoW}

Jan 24th 2012 10:20AM You can find Asric and Jadaar in the darkmoon fair sometimes. I think it was near the picnic area I saw them at. Really disappointing though. I waited by them for several minutes and they never said a word to each other. :(

Blizzard really needs to do a comic with these guys.
